Available Now


This design book showcases the work of eight master stoneworkers from around the United States in a wide variety of interior and exterior projects. Large, full-color photography captures stone constructions including retaining walls, steps, fireplaces, patios, water features, and free-standing structures. Each artist's work is featured in a dedicated chapter and shows a selection of techniques, including dry stacking, mortaring, paving, and carving. Though these craftsmen adhere to different aesthetics, the fundamentals of their craft and their patience for building something with permanence is common throughout. From small garden walls to two-story fireplaces, here is the grand, simple, and sustainable work of contemporary stone artisans for designers, students, and homeowners.
